Interdisciplinary Intercampus Research Program
In a cooperative effort, the system and campuses designed the newest funding program to enhance interdisciplinary and intercampus collaboration among the four campuses. This program requires that each proposal include a researcher from at least two different UM campuses and across two different disciplines in order to be considered for funding.
This program, among others that come out of the system, was put in place to enhance technologies with strong commercial potential and make them more attractive to external funders or potential licensees. Each researcher can request up to $25,000, making the total reward maximum $100,000 depending on the number of collaborators.
The success of this mini grant program will determine whether this program will be supported annually.
